Celebrate Mardi Gras with us as we welcome Sam Reider and the Human Hands to the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio on Tuesday, February 13 - 3 to 4pm on Jazz from 1 to 4pm.
Jazz pianist turned roots musician, Sam Reider is redefining American music on the accordion. He’s been featured at Lincoln Center and on NPR, and performed alongside pop stars, virtuosos and folk musicians around the world. Sam Reider – accordion/piano, Roy Williams – guitar, Dominick Leslie – mandolin, and Phoebe Hunt – violin.
Sam set off on a journey that has taken him from back porches and dive bars to concert halls and major festivals in practically every state in the country. Representing the U.S. Department of State as a musical ambassador, Sam has travelled to China, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Turkey and Azerbaijan, carrying his accordion on his back everywhere he goes and collaborating at every opportunity with international artists. Now he’s surrounded himself with a crew of some of the most in-demand young acoustic musicians on the scene in Brooklyn. The Human Hands have developed a cultish following and a reputation for mind-bending sets of high-energy, improvised music. More about Sam Reider
